WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Nov. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of wireless solutions for securing, tracking and managing high-value enterprise assets, today announced that US Trailer Holdings LLC has executed a contract with I.D. Systems' Asset Intelligence subsidiary to deploy its VeriWise™ Track and Trace asset management system on a portion of their trailer fleet. The contract includes new VeriWise units in addition to services for existing VeriWise units already installed on US Trailer Holdings' trailer fleet.
VeriWise Track and Trace provides real-time GPS data via cellular communications and web-based software to improve the security and efficiency of freight transportation fleets. The system is designed for quick, flexible installation on a wide range of cargo-carrying assets, with patented power management technology to provide exceptionally long battery life and maintenance-free operation.
US Trailer Holdings was formed by Wood Creek Capital Management, LLC in June 2012 to acquire certain trailer assets from GE Trailer Fleet Services, a long standing Asset Intelligence customer. As part of the transaction, US Trailer Holdings purchased VeriWise devices already deployed on the trailers and entered into a new service contract for VeriWise fleet monitoring of these devices. US Trailer Holdings' equipment manager, Quest Capital Group LLC (www.questcapgroup.com), will coordinate with Asset Intelligence on the installation of the new VeriWise units and integrate the system with US Trailer Holdings' customers.
"Based on the historical performance of VeriWise technology and the proven economic benefits it has generated, we are expanding deployment of the Track and Trace system on our US Trailer Holdings fleet," said Jordan L. Ayers, managing director of Quest Capital Group. "The system enables us to track our trailer fleet efficiently and cost-effectively, which helps us offer our customers the most flexible, cost-effective menu of asset management solutions possible. In addition to economic value and reliable quality, one of the most important attributes of the Track and Trace system is its ability to be installed quickly and easily on virtually any type of transportation asset. That's critical for us, since Quest manages a large and diverse portfolio of intermodal, rail and marine equipment."
I.D. Systems' COO, Darryl Miller, said, "It is gratifying to be able to transition our relationship from GE Trailer Fleet Services to US Trailer Holdings. This new contract significantly increases the total number of assets we will be tracking for US Trailer Holdings, including the existing VeriWise units acquired from GE. We are proud to play a key role in US Trailer Holdings' ability to provide affordable, effective transportation asset management to its customers."
